Irrigation Channels Paths in Venosta Valley

Hiking Along the Irrigation Channel Paths in Venosta Valley

As a high-altitude Alpine dry valley, among the characteristic traits of Venosta Valley are the narrow hiking trails which run along the centuries-old irrigation channels at the foot of the mountains. These were built hundreds of years ago and served to irrigate the surrounding fields during periods of drought. These irrigation channel paths have hardly any gradients, are accessible during all seasons and are among the most popular hiking trails of the region.

The irrigation channel paths around Malles/Mals, Glorenza/Glurns and Sluderno/Schluderns, as well as the 11 km-long irrigation channel of Senales-Ciardes/Tscharser Schnalswaal, are all particularly popular.

Note:
The narrow paths are not suitable for cyclists.
